Hear Chadwick Boseman’s voice on What if…? was emotional. He had a lovely, soothing voice and he pointed it out here with such a wonderful performance. He was truly a remarkable performer caught too early. Forever our Black Panther. Forever our King.

Chadwick Boseman met CNET in 2017 for an in-depth interview on the meaning of Black Panther and how he felt about this movie and its portrayal was so important to all viewers.
“It’s just this great opportunity, not just for me but for all of us to really step out of our boxes. It’s not just black people who come out of their boxes. Everyone is excited about the opportunity to do something we should have done already. People are excited to see new things, but I think they are very excited to see things that they should have seen before.
It is inspired by various ideologies. He draws from the idea of Blacks-in-science, from a nationalist idea, he draws from an idea of the collective world. There is something that is going to influence people in a particular way. It took all this time to come to fruition in a larger way, but now the world is right, the world is able to receive it. It’s just a special thing.
When they call you up and say “So you wanna play Black Panther?” if you know what Black Panther is, there’s no way in the world you’ll be saying no because there are a lot of opportunities for the magic to happen.
Chadwick Boseman will be forever missed by his family, friends, colleagues and fans across the world. Chadwick brought the world of Wakanda and the spirit of King T’Challa to life, which will be felt for generations to come. As his character said: “In my culture, death is not the end.
May Chadwick continue to rest peacefully. Did hearing this music during the show make you sentimental? Make sure you let us know. Wakanda forever!
